Spring Hill Knight Foundation now has trained instructors for QPR suicide prevention. The class is between 60 to 90 minutes and those completing the class become certified QPR Gatekeepers. What does that mean? Gatekeepers have learned to identify warning signs, what ages, social groups and professions are at increased risk and how to Question, Persuade and Refer others in crisis. The QPR Gatekeeper training is free for all who want to attend thanks to Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network and is open to everyone.
